Hot Yoga Class Descriptions

Restorative - great way to experience mild heat and opening postures for cell renewal, flexibility and creating inner peace that stills the mind. It focuses more on renewing the bodies flow of nutrients and oxygen.

Beginners  - This is a program that would suit anyone having a fear about going into the hot room.  The postures are all at a beginners level.  You will be taught everything from where to place your feet, to what to do with your nose.

Yin  - Anyone can do this class.  The tolerance for it varies, Yin Yoga has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga, however it directs the stimulation normally created in the asana portion of the practice deeper that the superficial or muscular tissues.  Postures are held for long periods, in some cases 7 minutes.

Hatha - Open to anyone who would like to come on in and have a basic understanding of yoga.

Hatha Flow  - This is an advanced class that requires a knowledge base for yoga of about 6 months.  The style of the class will depend on the individual teaching it.  Flow is born from the idea of movement within ourselves to freedom.

Slow flow  - This class is about holding postures for breath, alignment, and some core work.  It may not be as intense of a cardio workout as hatha flow, but opens the muscles, breath and mind to the intention of the movement.

B.I. (B. Inspired) - A more advanced practice it moves from one posture to another in a commanding way. 

M.I. (M inspired)  - This is a moderate practice that will both challenge and lead you into peace.  This class follows a set pattern of postures to create openness to breath and awareness of the space around you

Ashtanga - This is an advanced class given to us by the great sages of yoga.  Ashtanga is a 5000 year old set sequence of postures designed to bring incredible strength, flexibility and endurance to the body and a sense of stillness to the mind.
